Poskantoor Bult | Winter Sunset


I once read an article about a guy who climbs the Lion’s Head every morning to take photos. Taking photos of the same landscape every day has challenged him to see the landscape in different ways than just the ordinary. Now Poskantoor Bult, just outside of Otjiwarongo has become my challenge.

Here a few photos of Otjiwarongo well after sunset from Poskantoor Bult. Though the last photo is the lightest, it was taken last but with a much longer exposure.

Yakandonga Weekend | Day photos


A few weekends ago we went out to Yakandonga for a birthday weekend. It was the first time I visited since a teen a high school so had no idea what to expect.

Yakandongo used to be a hunting farm, but has recently been sold to a cattle farmer. Since the guest chalets are still standing and in working order, they do allow visitors but do not advertise them as such. Since we were a rather big group, they also didn’t take any other bookings for the weekend, so we had the space for ourselves.

This isn’t a destination I would recommend to tourists, but for the Namibian family looking to break away from town on an affordable budget – this is a good option.


Du Preez Wild | A Spot of Wild | Otjiwarongo


I recently had the privilege to see some wild and rare animals up close when asked to take their mug shots for an auction. In Namibia, we are privileged to see wild animals almost every time we drive between towns or sometimes in the winter, during drought, they’d even come into town searching for food. To see them this close, however, was a bit different. It is only when one is so close to them, that you realise how big they are.

Here a few of my favourite shots.
